    He seems to be more open and honest. I like it.

    I'm beginning to think Cashman could save a bunch of orphans from a burning building and you'd criticize him for the route he took on the way out.

    You should have listen to him yesterday then on WFAN as he was very positive about Hughes and his pitching staff.

    Re: Brian Cashman Performance Thread 2.0

    Offseason grade for Cashman? (Assuming at the moment that Chavez comes back for around $1m, and that there are no other significant deals up his sleeve.)

    I think a solid B is in order. I don't like the Ibanez signing, and I'm a little bothered that there wasn't a deal for a younger outfielder in there somewhere; someone who could act as a better-than-Dickerson backup OF and DH, which then gives you options if you don't bring back Swisher in 2013. Kuroda is a decent signing, the Pineda deal certainly beats the market for Pineda-like players, and the farm system still exists.

    I remain bummed that Montero won't be a Yankee (at least, until 2018 or whatever). Thought that one might fade after a week or two, but it hasn't. But then, it's not Cashman's job to worry about that stuff.

    Be seeing you,

    Must be why ARod and Tex played both games of the doubleheader in Boston on the final day.

    From top to bottom, this is one of the strongest Yankee rosters in a while.

    - Deep rotation
    - Deep bullpen
    - Deep lineup
    - Capable bench

    Yeah, I think this might be the best offseason of Cashman's career. He's been creative and thorough while on a budget, something he's never managed to do before. I give him a lot of props. Regardless of whether this roster wins the WS, Cashman made really smart moves.

    This team won 95 games last year with a joke of a rotation. They will now return with basically the same lineup and tremendous SP and RP depth. They have to be the AL favorites on paper.

    I wonder if Cashman regrets trading Jesus for Pineda right now.

    It may have not been a great rotation on paper, but it performed very well. We'll have to see what happens after the games start

    I have some concerns about the offense....but yeah I get what you're saying. On paper, the pitching staff is straight up nasty.

    Neither guy has played a single game for his new team. If Cash liked the deal when he made it, why would he regret it now?

    Halo's essentially have a rotation that rivals Philly (if not better) with Pujols (and Morales/Trout/Kendrick/Bourjos). I fear them.

    Some of the things he's said since the trade (even well before the predictable velocity discussion) made it seem like he regretted it even as he was doing it.
    Plays the game the wrong way.

    I think he recognizes Montero's potential and would love to have him on the Yankees, but I haven't read anything that made me think he regretted making the deal. There's a difference between wishing you could have kept a guy and regretting the trade.

    Seeing as he had the authority to either make the trade or not make the trade, I would think this is reading too much into things. He wouldn't have made the deal if he didn't think it was a good one.

    Cash has been money this offseason. I know people have read his comments and thought he was careless with it, but to me it is a sign that he feels comfortably in power of baseball ops as GM instead of being constantly overruled and/or underappreciated due to payroll. There aresome GM's on this board that have their "Linsanity" moments such as Jack Z. couple years ago where some people proclaimed him to be a semi-God of GM's. Cash is smart, steady, respected by fellow GMs, old and new school. As we all know, with enough of a sample size, you can see true performance charts and thru all ups and downs Cashman's GM OPS+ has to be in 120-130 range. I should probably TM that :-)
    Congratulations and thank you for number 27, Yankees !!!!!!!!!!!!!. 1 game at a time to 28. C'mon, Yankees.

    I would think that Swish will not be back on the team. I trust Cash has his eyes set on a handful of players to fill the RF slot. I suspect it will not be from the farm though.

    I wonder if he would have traded Montero knowing Pettitte was coming back.

    Yes. The move he most likely would not have done is the Kuroda signing.

    what makes you say that.

    I think he signs Kuroda and keeps Montero. At that point, you have plenty of pitching and you get to keep Montero.
